Natural Ecosystems and Diversity: What’s Blooming

The end of wild flower season brings some of my favorites: mariposa tulip, bog candle, and Neptune’s trident. ¬†They are all a part of the healthy diversity of this ecosystem in which we live. As Goethe, that philosopher inspiring both C. G. Jung and Rudolf Steiner, stated, the more biodiversity and life in an ecosystem, the more life the system can support.

We work to make sure significant parts of our ranch remember what has always grown here and try to learn from them what a healthy balance is.
